Day 154 –Happiness — Haibun Journey Beauty Each Day

This evenings beauty came in the form of light and birds and a feeling of happiness. As evening approached I saw a retailed hawk landing in a field. As it flew it seemed to pass right in front of the mooning the azure sky.

bringing the moon closer

As we drove by he folded his wings, standing up proud with feather’s ruffling in the breeze. Soon the sky turned yellow and filled me with joy as it shown behind the trees in all it’s splendor. As we drove on the sun became a large yellow ball touching the earth and the sky turning more golden, and the orange and pink. A flock of birds flew up and were silhouetted against the sunset. Then I watched the slow flight of a blue heron across the sky and into a tree and smile as happiness closes the day.
